Train the trainer

The trainer performs potentially one of the most important and influential roles within an organisation. A great trainer can not only teach people how to ‘do things’ – but can also influence culture and drive positive change throughout an organisation.


“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.”

William A Ward

Programme structure

Train the trainer includes a learning styles profile – all delegates receive a learning styles report, to help them better understand themselves and how they interact with others. Train the trainer is aimed at trainers, or technical people who have to train as part of their role.

It is designed to help you:

  • Create an effective environment for learning.
  • Understand the impact of paradigms on learners and trainers.
  • Be clear about what others perceive from your communication style.
  • Understand how we learn and develop.
  • Keep in mind a reference for behaviours.
  • Ensure you communicate in an optimum manner when training.
  • Listen well, and handle any distractions professionally.
  • Give the feedback that builds individuals and learning.
  • Move people’s learning and development forward with effective, appropriate questioning.
  • Get clear what needs to be taken into account when designing training.
  • Understand how to match content to outcomes.
  • Manage group interactions professionally and effectively.
  • Know when to stop training and start coaching or mentoring.
  • Use feedback to refine your approach.
